video, the suspect simply disappeared after that single shot into new york traffic. so many questions here. i want to bring in new york times reporter david goodman. david, excellent reporting. all these details in your piece this morning. i guess one of the first things when i read it i thought you have this victim, brandon woodward, law student, apparently had a law school exam the next day back in los angeles, but he didn't have a return ticket. tell me more. >> well, yes, thanks for having me, brooke. so that's the -- the police say he doesn't have a return ticket. his family was under the impression he was coming back on tuesday. and that his mother told us that she had plans to pick him up at the airport. so that's another one of the mysteries that surrounded this death, that has been intriguing from the beginning. just the very fact of having a man shot in what appears to be a targeted killing, assassination almost, murder, on the streets of one of the tony areas in the city, broad daylight, lunch time, holiday shoppers everywhere, and the fact that this shooter who we now have
. that's the charge of this group. >> i'll read to you a line from maureen dowd's column in "the new york times" yesterday. she was talking about the future of the republican party. you guys are going to be taking a closemayans were right, as it turns out, when they predicted the world would end in 2012. the world of arrogant, uptight, entitled, bossy, retrogressive white guys. when it came to white guys, the republicans still do well. >> that's why i salute chairman wright's pribus for forming this. if you don't change with a country while maintaining your countries and your ideology but making those principles more believable, you're not doing your job. ronald regular be wasagan was a that. keep a conservative base and make it attractive to the middle. there's room to be a conservative party that has ideas thidea s ideas that sell not only with the conservative base but with a group much bigger because the ideas are good ones. we cannot just be a party of white people. when reagan was elected, 88% of the voters were white. today, it's 72%. you do the math. >> how do you go out and reass
minneapolis who wrote an opinion piece, an op ed in "the new york times," and a protection racket where people are controlled by organized criminals, corrupt politicians. when you hear the head of the nra today say that gun laws are not the answer it really is arming people, arming somebody in that school that could have saved lives, what is your response? >> well, we -- of course, should focus on mental health issues. we should have fewer violent movies and video games and have better security in our schools, but nothing is going to change the fact that the last thing those children saw if they looked up, and i hope they didn't, is the end of a weapon manufactured by his financial backers. lapierre says if one of those teachers had a weapon they could have killed the gunman and could have saved lives and that was the potential outcome had there been someone armed in that school. >> we could always speculate about potential outcomes, but to have more weapons in the schools, particularly in the hands of people other than trained law enforcement, i think, is a very dangerous thing. the point i m
. "outfront" tonight, alex, author and former reporter for the "the new york times" and seth jones. good to see you. seth, there's a lot of things we don't know about the rebels. as that point just made clear. james clapper, the director of national intelligence had warned congress that some of the attacks we've seen in syria bore the hallmarks of al qaeda. there have been atrocities committed by these rebels. there appear to be no question about that. executions. a new video posted yesterday showed a man filming himself while he shot ten unarmed prisoners. should we arm the rebels? >> well, i think we should arm and this is not just about arming. this discussion seems to overlook the fact that the rebels need intelligence, supplies. the challenge though is that the largest opposition movement is the free syrian army. the problem though is that we've got a range of sunni extremist groups including al qaeda's front that operates in syria. it's conducted a range of attacks. it is an extremist group that wants to establish sharia law in syria. it cannot get into the hands of al qaeda in ira
, they took every rate and did it two years. this is not a matter if republicans are saying new york city we're going to vote no on everything. what we're doing is voting yes on every single tax rate going up. the third part is trying to reduce spending. last year during the budget agreements, we agreed that we would find a way to cut $1.2 trillion in spending. so that's still on the table right now. if it's not done, there's across-the-board spending cuts and a lot of americans say that's the wrong way to do it. >> you know what, there's an interesting poll that comes out of bloomberg and the question is about a mandate. i thought this was interesting. obama's re-election, the question goes, gives him a mandate to raise taxes on those making $250,000 plus. and the answer was yes, 65% of people polled said yes, in fact they do believe that he has a mandate there. with that polling, how does that make you change how you see your position as you go into the negotiation along with the fact that everybody's taxes are going up anyway at the end of this year? no matter what happens, you can do abs
in february 10th in los angeles. >>> you'd never know it's the holidays in new york city by the temperatures. it's been in the 60s here this week. i'm worried by daffodils are going to come up. where's winter? meteorologist alexandra steele is in for rob. >> today new york you will be in the 40s but you know, where's it been? in the last two weeks or so, we've had 1,600 record highs. of course with the warmth we've had a lack of early snow in the midwest and also in the northeast. of course they go hand in hand. take a look at this. it's been 276 days in chicago without measurable snow. measurables is a tenth of an inch or more. we could break the record in milwaukee. it's been 275 days without measurable snow. the record there only a few days from now. really no big snowstorms, not even an inch coming for some of these places but that will change. colder air is coming. i promise if you're looking for it. we've seen such cold air in alaska and in canada. that wilt drain farther south. the jet stream allows these temperatures to drop off and afford snow if the moisture moves in. 15 to 25 degr

it before. the "$360" million deal will give delta a bigger share to the new york to paris flights. he tweeted the partnership will allow virgin to give british airways and the atlantic airlines a run for the money. he's not afraid to take auto competition or a controversial issue, including the legalization of drugs which he supports. in my sit-down with him i asked him about the recent votes in colorado and washington state that legalize marijuana use. here's how he weighed in. you made some news about two states that are legalizing marijuana. you believe this eventually is inevitable and will happen. tell me why. >> well, i'm positive on the global commission on drugs. we spent two years examining it. it's absolutely apparent to it in the 50 years since the united nations got together to create the war that it's failed. so what the commission is saying is please try different approaches. on an immediate basis please stop locking up our children, our brothers and sisters. that's not the way to help them if they have a drug problem. put them through drug rehabilitation, get them well
know, there was a graph in the "new york times" today that showed it. they're the same the categories, right? there's a little bit of tweaks here and there and a few differences, but, you know, we're right there. on the revenue side there's a difference in terms of them wanting to preserve tax breaks for folks between 250 and a million that we just can't aafford. keep in mind, i'm in that income category. i'd love to, you know, not pay as much in taxes, but i also think it's the right thing to do for us to make sure that people who have less, people who are working and striving, people who, you know, are hoping for their kids that they have opportunity. that's what we campaigned about. that's what we talked about. this is not a situation where i i'm, you know, unwilling to compromise. this is not a situation where i'm trying to, you know, rub their face in anything. i mean, i think anybody who looks at this objectively would say that coming off my election i have met them at least halfway in order to get something done for the country. and so i notice that there were a couple of headl
